At Least South Florida Didn't Have a Murder Suspect on the Ballot
As Homer said: "Don't blame Me. I voted for Kodos."
We've made some cracks over the last few weeks about how even pending felony cases didn't stop South Florida pols from campaigning. Former Miramar Commissioner Fitzroy Salesman had gun charges, while Deerfield Beach Mayor Al Capellini was suspended after he was indicted on felony corruption charges. Neither won his race, though Capellini's coming within 400 votes of victory was still an impressive feat of "trust-me-not-the-prosecutor."
In a village in upstate New York called Corfu, a mayoral candidate was arrested as a murder suspect after police found a dead man in his driveway. And this candidate lost by only 62 votes. Top that, Broward!
